Four doors. Four seats. Eight cylinders. To this point, others may even have been able to keep up. But then comes a point of difference in the form of the new Panamera Turbo. It not only joins a long line of Porsche Turbo models—it leads the way with its extensive standard equipment combined with a host of features that are exclusive to a Turbo.
What about the aesthetics? 19-inch Panamera Turbo wheels and red brake calipers. Dual-twin tailpipes in the unmistakable Turbo design. Four LED daytime running lights in each headlight unit with separate direction indicators. The front end features horizontal slats and longitudinal struts in the air intakes. The air outlets in the fender behind the front wheels also have slats. Five, to be exact, and all in a chrome finish. The auto-deploying two-piece rear spoiler highlights the rear of the Turbo.
The new Panamera Turbo is powered by a 4.8-liter, twin-turbo V8 engine that generates an output of 500 horsepower and 516 lb.-ft. of torque. The 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung is fitted as standard, as is Porsche Traction Management with intelligent all-wheel drive and an electronically controlled multiplate clutch.
Also fitted as standard is adaptive air suspension, including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) with three damping and suspension settings ranging from comfort to sporty, and a suspension leveling system and ride-height adjustment. Increased performance or greater comfort? The choice is yours. Simply press the button.
And what about the interior? Typically Porsche with all the usual Turbo features. A perfect combination of sportiness and comfort. As standard equipment, the interior features 14-way power seats including a memory package, with seat heating, front and rear.
The Panamera Turbo also features the Bose® Surround Sound system as standard. The Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System is available as an option.
